(Heb. Arab', אֲרָב , Ambush; Sept. Ε᾿Ρέβ v. r. Αἰρέμ ), a city in the mountains of Judah, mentioned in connection with Golon and Dumah ( Joshua 15:52), whence probably the Gentile ARBITE ( 2 Samuel 23:35). According to Jerome (Onomast. s.v. Ereb) it lay south of Daroma, and was then called Eremittytha (Euseb. Ε᾿Ρέμινθα ) . Schwarz (Palest. p. 105) says it is the village al-Arab, situated on a mountain four English miles south-east of Hebron; but other authorities make no mention of such a place, and the associated names require a locality rather to the west of Hebron (Keil, Comment. on Joshua in loc.), possibly the ruined site el- Hadb at the foot of a hill south-west of Dura (Robinson, Researches, 3, 5). (See Judah)

(See Raven).

The English engineers found a very ancient site, called Kirbet el- Arabiyeh, east of Hebron (three and a quarter miles on the Ordnance Map), marked by wells and cisterns, which Lieut. Conder is disposed to regard as identical with that of Arab, notwithstanding the substitution of ע for א in the name (Quar. Report of the "Pal. Explor. Fund," Jan. 1875, p. 14; in his Tent Work, ii, 334, he spells it Er-Rabiyeh); and Dr. Tristram adopts the location (Bible Places, p. 63). The place is probably the one indicated by Schwarz (Palest. p. 105). But the situation is rather too far east for the associated names of the group ( Joshua 15:52-54).
